Marie Malherbe


Marie Malherbe was born in 1975 in Nice (France). Her fine arts education starts at the École des Beaux-Arts in Geneva (Charles Vogt’s class). She continues with sculpture in Paris (France), getting at the same time a bachelor in Mathematics (Paris-VI Pierre et Marie Curie University) and a Master’s degree in History at the Sorbonne. In 1996 she wins a scholarship from the Sorbonne in Byzantine History at the Ca’Foscari University in Venice. There she studies traditional and experimental etching techniques with Nicola Sene at the Centro Internazionale della Grafica. In 2003 she sets up her own painting studio in Vienna (Austria). She has been exhibiting in Paris, Vienna and Italy, and in the Venice ghetto every year since 2012.

Her work is about beauty as a divine sign lifting up souls and thus transforming the world. She paints her enchanted world in a poetic style mixing byzantine and baroque languages.

Her work has been recently selected for the opening of the « Photissima » Pavillion in the framework of the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015, and for the Cathedral Jubilee installation in Treviso in 2016. Her projects have been selected for the « Abramitic Pavilion » in the Interreligious Biennale of Sacred Art (BIAS) in Palermo in 2016 and 2018. She keeps exhibiting small as well as large scale works in spiritually meaningful monuments and places.
